Helenans Who Served: WWII veteran who trained Army sled dogs turns 100

World War II veteran Dave Armstrong turned 100 years old last Monday, and the local living legend was treated with a Zoom birthday party with several of his closest friends to celebrate the occasion.

Armstrong helped train sled dogs at Camp Rimini during the war, and as a co-founder of the “Race to the Sky” sled dog race he was a two-time recipient of the Race to the Sky Sportsmanship Award, in 1990 and 1995.

The Montana Military Museum published a new calendar featuring Armstrong, and his friends at the facility at Fort Harrison have also designated 2021 as “The Year of Dave Armstrong.”
